Film Making Tips Day Three: Boom Poles

Sometimes the audio from your camera mic just won’t cut it. That why it’s always a good idea to use a boom pole to capture sound. These can be made inexpensively from painter’s poles, fishing poles, monopods, or even broomsticks! There are many many great tutorials, but here are a few that I like:

Most shotgun mics will be able to connect directly into your digital camera, but if you are recording on an external source or you are on a multi camera shoot you will need a slate to sync up your sound.

These can be bought online for cheap or you can download apps to turn your tablet into a slate. But if worst comes to worst you can always just have someone clap in front of the camera before a take!
